window hanger made of scraps and recycling materials and a felted bird
because my friend Sheilaloved my birthday birdcage hanger , i t hought i must make one for her as well.
I had still some needle and wet felted birds and thought i must first embroidering them and pick the loveliest one for my friend and make an more easy one birdcage hanger for her.
so this is my own variation of my own project. LOL
Not from all the steps i have made pictures.
but i think you will understand this too without the pictures and other wise jump to my other tute, or feel free to ask me your questions.
you allways can use other kinds of birds, toy's or bought one ,xmas birds ect. and you allways can use in stead of the brench an other thing where the bird on could stand.
just be creative and have fun;-D
thank you for hopping by;-D
first make the brench clean, Use a brush and put the brench in the oven at 200 degrees for 20minutes all the bugs will be dead and your house will be safe of them;-D
Add a layer of woodglue on it.
let it dry.
make some holes underneat the belly of your bird. for his/hers legs.
i used a knife and an awl.
when the woodglue is dried you can give the brench a colour with some paint.
i have choosen cold because i liked it to look him alittle bit kistschy.LOL
measuring two pieces of 30 cm/ or 12 inches , cut it off.
1.fold it in two
for the middle toe make some twists.
2. fold on ther right side one piece of the same length in two and this will be the right toe.
3. for the left do the same .
Now you have made the foot..
4.the rest long parts of the wire you must stwisting them together this will be the leg.
okay you're ready with this part.
with some hot glue you glue the the legs tight in the holes of the birds body;-D
wrap the toes on the brench so he stay's on the brench.
